CA-36 – “Disappointed” shows how after 14 years in Washington and votes to gut Medicare while raising her own pay nine times and giving members of Congress taxpayer-funded health care for life, it’s clear Mary Bono Mack is looking out for herself, not the Coachella Valley. “Disappointed” will run in Palm Springs for a week as part of House Majority PAC’s $285,000 buy.
CA-52 – “Representing You” points out that Brian Bilbray’s votes to end guaranteed Medicare benefits, let insurance companies discriminate against women and deny access to birth control don’t reflect the views of San Diego families. “Representing You” will run through Election Day in San Diego as part of House Majority PAC’s $850,000 buy.
